The view from my window

(It's hard to take a picture through a screen!) Some of us have been pretty concerned about the new construction at 1713. The plan as we understand it is for one new small rental house in the back of the wooded lot. The builder showed his site plan to us immediate neighbors. He affirmed that he wants to help the street improve, not bring it down. He plans to leave any trees on site that aren't in the way of the house or the driveway. So far, they've set a culvert where the driveway crosses the stream, and have been clearing out trees. Our house shakes as they shove around the old, dead logs. The builder gave me his card, but it appears I've already lost it.
